Still time for wind farm fund

The Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund is still open for applications from community groups until September 30.

Applications to the fund can be made from groups and projects which benefit the communities.

Applications cover the community council areas of Crathes, Drumoak and Durris; Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore; North Kincardine Rural; Portlethen and District; Stonehaven & District.

RES has established a community fund which will see more than £20,500 available to support local community projects every year during the lifetime of the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm. The fund is administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) and managed by a Decision Making Panel made up of members of the local community councils.

The fund is open for applications from 1 July to 30 September 2015. A panel made up of representatives from the community council areas along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) will then meet in November to consider applications.
